Domestic violence affects the whole family, and many times women and children must leave behind everything that they have known. Survivors must build a new life while overcoming physical and emotional scars. Holistic wellness practices can offer these survivors a sacred place within themselves to heal from the past, rebuild inner strength, and choose a path of promise forward.
In partnership with the District Alliance for Safe Housing (D.A.S.H.) we created a wellness room in a transitional housing development in Washington, DC that offers a spectrum of weekly wellness classes and services for the 50 resident women and families who have survived domestic violence and are struggling with homelessness.
